The SME Talent Programme helps local SMEs attract students from the Institute of Technical Education (ITE), Polytechnics and Universities by providing funding for student internships. Food manufacturers may receive support for meaningful internships which have structured learning objectives and a mentorship programme, that is aligned to SkillsFuture Enhanced Internship guidelines.
How can SFMA help you?
The Singapore Food Manufacturers' Association (SFMA) is appointed by SPRING Singapore to assess and qualify SMEs who are keen to participate in STP, and will play an active role in matching suitable student interns to approved SMEs.
At the end of the internship, food manufacturers can submit the following documents to SFMA via STPNet for claims processing:
Student and company feedback form
Student internship report
Payslips of all claimable months
Company bank statement of any claimable month
